Hire a Renovator Mentor

Calgary & Edmonton


If you are you about to jump into the DIY home renovation world but concerned that your project could go expensively awry, this is where a Renovation Mentor could be of help to you.

Renovation mentors can be looked at as a type of expert project manager – they can assist you in many different aspects of helping you with your budget, design ideas, advising on materials and vendors as well. In our mentoring program, because our experts are renovation professionals, we can go one step further and also help you at different stages of your projects - on the tools, getting you 'unstuck' or advising how to get past your challenges!

This program is designed for you to have guidance every step of the way, ensuring that you have the correct advice to give you the confidence and ability to have a successful renovation project  

Colin Herring and members of his team can be that mentor for you.  He has over 35 years of carpentry experience with so many tips and tricks with his ‘been there done that’ nod of his head.  Think of him as your ‘reno therapist’ to help build your confidence as you maneuver your way through your reno project. While this is your project that you are doing and managing, having our team look over your shoulder gives you the confidence to know that your work is going in the right direction.  Hear what others have to say...

Colin was eager to pass his knowledge along and encouraged me not only to try the tools but also to ask about my specific project needs and answer any questions I had.  Mal P. Calgary

 Colin is so knowledgeable and helpful. He also has a way of explaining things so that everyone understand.  Marisa T. Calgary

 Every step of the way, Colin took time to answer any questions, even going so far as to set up my particular situation in the shop so he could show me what I need to do.  Rob H. Calgary

Colin is definitely an expert in his craft and his enthusiasm is contagious!  CJ C. Canmore

Colin is right there watching and offering feedback and direction every step of the way.  Tracey J. Calgary

Colin's knowledge is practical and genuine for DIY projects.  Kamran. Calgary

If you want the best outcome for your project, you need to ask the right person for guidance. In our experience, that person is no other than Colin and his team.  Larry M. Calgary 

While you might be hesitant to add another line item cost to your reno budget, our reasonable mentoring fees can help you avoid disastrous and costly mistakes.

We will come to your home, answer your questions and guide you in the right direction.  If you need a hand to get started, or maybe you are somewhat stuck in the middle of your project or maybe it’s just that extra little bit of assistance to help at the end, we are here for you to provide you with that expert guidance that you require.

Our mentoring is based in both Calgary or Edmonton city limits. Outside of Calgary or Edmonton, you may be charged a fee for travel time.  Please enquire before booking.
